AVATAR Mercury Ultrabook AVIU-145A2 Review
     Mon, May 20 2013 | 8:12P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To get an idea about the available battery life I put the AVATAR Mercury Ultrabook AVIU-145A2 in High Performance mode after a full charge and played back a 720p video in a loop. It lasted roughly four hours, which is a great performance and would yield a longer on-screen time under normal use. In terms of portability the AVATAR Mercury Ultrabook AVIU-145A2 weights about 3.9 pounds; not the lightest ultrabook out there but I still find it very comfortable to carry around. The aluminium body offers a good grip and is overall very nice to the touch. I actually managed to fit it in the ECBC Poseidon Messenger Bag K7202 that I reviewed a while back. The thin build of the Ultrabook made it possible to also fit the charger and some other stuff in the various pockets; not bad knowing that the bag is for 13 laptops!"

     Mon, May 20 2013 | 4:27P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In part two of his critical look at the post-Jobs Apple, our resident Mac blogger argues that simplicity is being sacrificed to add features of dubious value, and that the random use of skeuomorphic design elements is ruining the UI. The magic is gone, and it won`t be easy to regain."

Defiance Review: Resistance is Not Futile @ Techgage
     Mon, May 20 2013 | 11:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When entering the world of Defiance for the first time, its wise to take everything you know about MMOs and purge it from memory. This is a game that strives to be a bit different, and the fact that the entire game can be completed solo and has no leveling system is a good hint to that. But the important question: is it worth your time?"

Intel i7 4770K Overclocking validations @ Ocaholic
     Mon, May 20 2013 | 9:11A | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
New forum member Validator found some new interesting CPU-Z validations showing Intel`s Core i7 4770K overclocked at 4.8 GHz and 5.0 GHz with less than 1.0v (using latest CPU-Z version so voltage reading should be accurate). There is also one validation that shows 32GB of memory working at DDR3-2800 MHz. PS: We have double checked those screenshots by finding the validation links ourselves and they are real, no photoshop."

TRITTON XBOX 360 Detonator Stereo Headset Review
     Sun, May 19 2013 | 5:17P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although for the past 7 years or so i have used countless stereo, virtual surround and true surround headsets i have to confess that nothing beats an dedicated 5.1/6.1/7.1 surround sound set in terms of positioning audio, clarity, volume levels and comfort especially if you plan on spending many hours in front of the screen. Still i can`t deny that headsets can be extremely useful especially when you are using it with multiplayer games (mainly because it`s easier to speak with your teammates) or you just don`t want to intrude on the privacy of those around you and vice versa. I guess that`s also why most people i know own headsets that they use with their computers, however the same does not apply for people with gaming consoles such as the Microsoft XBOX 360 mainly because there aren`t as many fully compatible headsets out in the market which is also why today we will be taking a look at the Detonator Stereo Headset by TRITTON."

Cooler Master N200 Mini-Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, May 19 2013 | 11:53A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master N200 case is a mini-tower budget solution that supports high-end component installation. The CM N200 can house a micro-ATX or a mini-ATX motherboard, CPU coolers up to 160mm tall and video cards up to 355mm long. The front intake has room for a pair of 120mm fans or a 240mm radiator with enough room for push pull configurations due to the movable HDD cage. Two versions of the Cooler Master N200 is available, a basic version with a pair of USB 2.0 ports and a single USB 3.0 port as well as an Advanced version with two USB 3.0 ports and a single USB 2.0 port in the front panel. The left side-panel of the N200 has a mounting area for a 120mm fan but there is a windowed side-panel version that lacks this feature. Out of the box, the Cooler master N200 is equipped with a pair of 120mm fans, one located in the front intake and one located in the rear exhaust. An optional 120mm or 140mm fan can be installed at the top of the CM N200 for additional exhaust as well."
